This script allows you to control iTunes using global hotkeys. For example, you could change the track and music volume while playing a game. It has a tray menu and a GUI to let you select hotkeys. Much thanks to Rob Saunders for his _ChooseHotKey UDF.

Thanks for the reply. Your lucky you don't use iTunes. A lot of other programs have this feature built in. I'm stuck with iTunes however for it has the best iPod support.

I am trying to avoid getting a ipod. I would rather something simple like a Creative MuVo and Winamp.

iTunes should come featured with these hotkeys. You'd think after 8 major upgrades they would. Apple are stupid like that though.

iTunes has them but only when the window has focus which is kind of stupid. Also iTunes still dosent use aero effects when it open and closes.

Great program but theres an iTunes addon which is just a dll file that allows media keys to control iTunes when its not the focus window. So its great if you have a media keyboard and the site I found it is http://www.aqua-soft.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=7965

Glad you like the app. =)

I'm curious how you used it to bind to wacom though? Care to elaborate?

I used the Wacom control panel to map the wacom buttons to CTRL+ F8 trough F12 and then hktunes config for CTRL+F8 -> next track etc. ;). I can use the scroll wheel for volume which is pretty neat...

Btw iTunes 10 was just released but HKTunes seems to still work!

Very cool. I'm not suprised it works with iTunes 10 but I still can't believe apple didn't put this feature in yet. It's a no-brainer.

It would be fantastic if you could add support for defining hotkeys to set the rating on the song currently playing.

Very cool solution which brings me out of the desaster Apple brought with iTunes! Spend some money!
